But sadly the atmosphere which was just wonderful. Was not matched by the food. But on the other hand the staff went the extra mile and tried so hard. Better luck next time!

We loved both times we were fortunate to know someone who had an in at this iconic and exclusive venue. We had such a good time and was able to experience both the dinner menu/service the first time and Sunday Brunch the 2nd time. Would love to be able to experience the Magic Castle again, no hesitation.

We were able to visit because we stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel next door—it's generally for members and guests. The shows were awesome, you can be amazed from 5pm till late, included in the door fee. The food was good, but the dining room was noisy. I wish that there weren't a requirement to order an entree item from... More

Love this place. The concept of magic shows and dinner. However due to the fact they want to keep the nostalgia feel it feels kinda dirty. I think they can update the vibe and keep the historical vibe with some effort. Food is good most the time. Must be a member or invited by a member to attend.

Our son treated us to a magical evening here, for Mother's Day. I loved the private club feel, professional dress attire. The mastic and interactions with the magicians are worthwhile. They have several bars ( old school feel) drinks are expensive as is dinner, but worth it. I I had the prime rib, very good . Our son had the... More

Excellent weekend brunch offering a great variety of quality selections. Everything was fabulous. Highlight of the brunch is the magic shows that follow, first in a main theater and then as selected. The weekend we visited included close-up magic shows by three incredible young magicians. VERY impressive. The castle is older and does require walking up and down narrow steps,... More

This exclusive magician's club is a once in a lifetime experience. You will enjoy a meal on the second floor, with a great view of Orange Avenue. Then enjoy the magic acts taking place at various locations in the Castle. In between act, enjoy the various items on the wall/ceiling/floor throughout your tour of the castle itself.

Had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly. You have your choice of a 6oz. & 9oz. It comes with roasted garlic whipped potatoes, and seasonal vegetables. Started with a Thai curry crab bisque soup that was really good and quite refreshingly different. Added a wedge salad . Great bread before the meal also. Dinner was excellent and so was... More

The Magic Castle has a great restaurant inside. It was a very busy Friday night and you need reservations. Food was great, sea bass was delicious and well prepared. We had to stay till closing, but we did get in to all the shows. All in all an amazing magical evening even though it was very crowded.

We received an invitation and WERE EXCITED, waiting almost a year to attend. However, the place was PACKED so we were only able to see one show the entire night. Lines were so long for the shows that we were told, even if we waited, that we would not be able to get in...So, you go to a place to... More
